Love, Dare, Grow: Follow Up
I checked in with our El Cerrito families about their experience with shelter in place…
How is your family coping with the shelter in place order due to the coronovirus pandemic? Do you have a story you want to share?
Megan and Eric:
We’re using lots of opportunities to meet up via technology with members of our extended family outside of the house & neighborhood to remain connected to our global community, from livestream dance parties broadcast from the San Juan Islands and group meditation sits led from Oakland to a one-on-one round of drinks between here & Atlanta or singing songs to babies in Washington DC.
We are definitely cooking more together during this shelter in place time. It's a roller coaster. Some days feels like a vacation and some days I am fighting panic. Very surreal. Trying to stay healthy and positive.
We don’t really have much to report. Obviously, life has changed substantially beyond our four walls. We don’t host our Thursday Night Dinners right now. They are on pause until we can safely resume. We are also just focusing on getting through every day, supporting each other in our household and supporting those we know (from a distance). Having just moved into our new place, we are getting used to a new normal, on top of all the other new normals out there… But we look forward in hope to the day when we can rebuild community and have people over for dinner.
We take our dog for lots of walks. I’m painting a bird house. My brother is constantly FaceTiming his friends.
